The weather was perfect on Friday for a day on the river - well, it wasn't really a day more like a short trip up the river to Chelsea. I had so been looking forward to going to the Chelsea Flower Show this year and the day began with a minor disaster - yes the car broke down on my way to my friend's house where I was going to leave the car before catching the train with said friend. It managed to break down on a main road where I had stopped at traffic lights - as the lights turned green the car turned itself off! As I waited for the AA to arrive a friendly policeman knocked on my window asking if I wanted to be pushed onto the side road because I was causing a traffic jam - fantastic. Once on the side road I managed to relax a little - there's nothing like angry fellow motorists shaking their heads and fists at me and mouthing obscenities to make you feel uptight - of course I planned to break down where I did just to make their and my life difficult - honestly "there's nowt so queer as folk" or should I say "nothing like a little road rage in the morning".
My friend arrived before the AA and we sat and waited together - we didn't have to wait too long really and although he was unable to get the car going again he did arrange for it to be towed to my local garage - the alternator had died.
The car gone we were on our way also and decided to only travel part way to Chelsea by train and then boarded a clipper at London Bridge for a lovely relaxing trip up the river.
We ended up having a lovely day - I took lots of photographs and bought lots of seeds and made a list of more plants that I want!! Now all I need is the time to sow everything.
|Anybody know what these are called? I know they are something Foxtail !|
|Can't remember the name of these either!|
|So many to choose from .... who can choose just one colour|
|How fabulous would this be in the front garden|
|I bought some of these bulbs - hope mine are as beautiful as these!|
|I want all of these!|
|A walled garden would make my life complete ..... well almost!|
More photographs tomorrow.
